Beauty Talk: Most Popular Ways To Remove Makeup

Yesterday, I had a kind of a poll on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook where I asked everyone what their favourite way to remove makeup was :)
Man! Fabulous response everyone, thank you!

Here are the 5 various most popular ways people remove their makeup:

Rank #1 - Cleansing Oil/Butter/Gel (14 votes)

This probably is not a surprise to most of us. Cleansing butters, gels and oils have been around since a while now but they have recently started coming into the mainstream. However, it still has a long way to go since the brands that offer these cleansing gems are clearly not drugstore.
What are Cleansing Butters/Oils/Gels?
I am a huge fan of The Body Shop Nutriganics Cleansing Gel Oil and The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter. In the polls, people have also mentioned cleansing oils and butters by Mac Cosmetics, Avene, Clarins and Bobbi Brown.

Rank #2 - Oil/Petroleum Jelly (13 votes)

This is probably the most effective and cost effective solution to removing one's makeup at the end of a long long day. Honestly speaking before I discovered cleansing butters, I would use Olive Oil and Baby Oil to remove my makeup as well... It just seems to melt away your makeup... The only downside of using oils and gels to remove makeup is that it needs to be followed up by a cleanser or a face wash else you are left with quite a lot of oily residue leaving you feeling not refreshed.
In the polls, the most popular oils mentioned were Almond, Olive, Coconut and Baby Oil. Tarannum even mentioned Sesame!

Rank #3 - Micellar Water (7 votes)

I expected Micellar water to get a little more votes really but well honestly, I myself am not a huge fan of Micellar water... I started using the Bioderma Micellar water since I came back from Italy but I am just not feeling it... It's too much work, too much product and it kind of stings my eye :(
However, it does leaving you feeling refreshed after you've used it to remove your makeup no doubt and I guess that is one reason that it is number 3... Another popular way to use it is to apply it after using an oil or vaseline to remove your makeup... It could act as an expensive replacement of rose water :P

Rank #4 - Makeup Remover

The good old makeup remover had to feature in this list now didn't it? Let's be honest, we all started with makeup removers as the ultimate product to help you remove the last bits of your makeup at the end of a long long day... It's been around long before fancy micellar waters and cleansing balms made their way into our kitties, isn't it :) People still use it, my sister for one still swears by her Neutrogena makeup remover and the fact that is ranked 4 in popularity goes to show that a lot of gorgeous women out there prefer it over other means.

So whats your take on removing makeup? Does your method feature in the list above or do you have a different albeit unique way of getting rid of makeup?

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
